Machiavelli lived during and participated in the Renaissance, a rebirth of the influence of the ancients and a time that could easily be seen as reactionary rather than progressive. He spoke of the ancients and moderns, but he called the moderns weak and supposed they could become strong only by imitating the ancients in politics, not only in humane letters as other Renaissance thinkers believed. Although Machiavelli opposed the utopian views of the Socratic tradition, referring to them as imaginary republics and principalities, with later modern philosophers he agreed that politics was the focus of human life.
